How is it possible to drain the swamp in American Politics? I sometimes wonder if that is even possible. My personal view is, yes, I’d like to drain the swamp too, I just want to drain the left-side of the swamp first, not sure how that would work. Back in late 2015 we discussed the issues with political corruption at our think thank and how to go about it, we determined it was necessary to ‘clean house’ or what Donald Trump calls; draining the swamp.
One of our think tankers asked; “What if the release of findings are to the people via an honest media source that reports on news as they really should?”
Yes, expose the corruption, kind of like WikiLeaks attempted to do with the DNC. Of course, one of the challenges is that much of the shenanigans going on in American Politics are not even considered serious by the masses (more so business as usual), as long as they get their free stuff or the politician is of their party, they don’t care. In the case of a reporter, if they lean-left they down play the allegations of Democrats and act as apologetics, then attack Republican politicians and leaders.
As a writer, I have no need for a Pulitzer, and I don’t always place a lot of value on self-righteous whistleblowers, especially those who are involved and want immunity or have an axe to grind, or have done something dishonest to do the whistleblowing. I especially dislike traitors.
